Pink Out!

Community Partnerships A message from LaLonnie Hurliman RN: October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and the Tillamook Breast Health Coalition will be sponsoring three PINK OUT events at high school football games starting with Tillamook High School on October 9Neah-Kah-Nie High School on October 17 and Nestucca Valley High School on October 31. The home football teams will be wearing pink socks and pink wristbands. The cheerleaders, dance team and band will be wearing pink as well. We will also encourage the students to wear pink to school on those days and will send the information out to the parents, friends and fans who will be attending the games so that they can wear pink as well. Plan to get dressed up in pink and show your support at these local football games in October. The newly reorganized Breast Health Coalition, of which TRMC is a part, is excited to be raising awareness about breast health in our communities and supporting local women who have breast cancer. October is breast cancer awareness month.
